I’ve been a big fan of Vanguard ball heads since I picked up the SBH-250 a couple of years ago. The new BBH Series builds on the good stuff from the SBH Series and then adds some more oomph for the professional touch and feel. [Read more...]
I was culling through some CES 2012 photos this week and came across this photo that I forgot I had taken of a Canon employee walking around taking photos of the Nikon booth.
You actually see this all the time at CES and other trade shows. A lot of employees know each other personally and will catch up a bit. However, they also walk around and check out each others new wares up close.
The JVC GY-HMQ10 is a new 4K camcorder, which captures the full 3840 x 2160 resolution at 24p, 30p and 60p frame rates. Yeah, 60p at 4K…
The HMQ10 features a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor at a true 8.2MP for pixel-to-pixel rendering of the 4K image. It is equipped with a fixed 10x zoom lens with an f/2.8 minimum aperture (f/4.5 at full tele).

Based on what I’ve seen so far, the Fuji X-Pro1 looks like it won’t disappoint and should easily be in the running for the 2012 Camera of the Year. [Read more...]
